Diplomatic counterterrorism network

The Netherlands has been on the forefront of the international counterterrorism efforts. In 2016 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has established a diplomatic counterterrorism network consisting of regional security coordinators and bilateral experts. These diplomats follow the terrorism and counterterrorism developments in their region, they look for opportunities to cooperate with (local) authorities and share Dutch expertise on the prevention of violent extremism.

During this event mr. Roy Hans (regional security coordinator in South-East Asia) will elaborate on his work as a diplomat and the security challenges in South-East Asia. He will be joined by ms. Louise van Gend, policy officer for counterterrorism at the MFA in The Hague.
